Birth and Postpartum Doula, Co-Owner of Helping Hands Doula

5 Things You Need to Know about Bringing Home Your Newborn

Jessica has supported close to 100 families in the last 7 years as a Birth & Postpartum Doula. With formal training from DONA International and a background in Health Sciences from UWO, her focus is enriching the experience of becoming parents. 

Her journey began while volunteering her time as an EMT in university and working with the more compassionate cases.  

She has always had an interest in supporting others around her but couldn’t put her finger on how she wanted to help. It was her final year at university that she came to realize her career path and became immersed in everything to do with pregnancy, childbirth and newborn development.

She considers it a privilege to be a part of her clients’ birth team and empower them to realize their own birth wishes by being their helping hand through the transition to parenthood.
